    Bio: Alex Salkever is the guy behind Hawaiirama.com, a visual guide to Hawaii and a blog covering what's new, what's fun, and what should be done in the islands. He lived in Hawaii for 15 years and continues to visit the islands regularly. He lives on Oahu, but knows all the islands very well. In a past life, Salkever was a journalist for BusinessWeek. He’s written freelance travel articles for Travel & Leisure, Conde Nast Traveler and The Washington Post. He says his chief vices are fine food (preferably Hawaii regional cuisine), surfing (only in warm water) and shaved ice. Natch.
